We found that rimming your glass with pop rocks makes for a very interesting drinking experience and putting pop rocks on a lime provides a fun kick after a shot.
The best part of the whole night was the knowledge that if we ran out of booze, we could pick some up because Denver finally allows alcohol sales on Sundays (as of July 1st)! This is the first time that liquor stores can sell alcohol on Sundays since the Prohibition.
Thank you Denver....thank you for making it easier for us LUPEC gals in Denver to do what we do best 7 days a week!

The Mint Julep became Churchill Down's signature drink in 1938, but originated in the eighteenth century.
How To Make A Mint Julep
- leaves from 4-5 mint sprigs
- 2 sugar cubes or 1/2 oz. simple syrup
- 2 1/2 oz bourbon
- mint sprig for garnish
- Place the mint and simple syrup or sugar into a julep cup, collins glass or double old-fashioned glass.
- Muddle well to dissolve the sugar and to release the oil and aroma of the mint.
- Add the bourbon.
- Fill with crushed ice and stir well until the glass becomes frosty.
- Garnish with the mint sprig.
Fix yourself a mint julep and countdown the days to LUPEC Denver's Fourth Annual Breakfast for Boobs on May 11th!
